GOODDAY,MR SCOTT ASTALUEGO.
I GOT YOUR MAIL AND IS WELL NOTED.
PLEASE DO NOT WORRY,YOUR DETAILS INFORMATION IS IN THE SAFE HAND,I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT.
I DID NOT RECIEVE THE FIRST ATTACHMENT YOU SEND.
SO PLEASE SEND ALL REQUIRED INFORMATIONS SO WE CAN PROCEED IMMEDIATELY.
THANK YOU.
YOURS SINCERELY
MR ALBERTO DAVID.

First of all, yes, that is my pen name used for these scambaits. To date, not one recipient has caught onto the name. Not one.

My response:
Mr. David,

I am relieved that you received my email, but am most concerned that you did not receive the attachment. I’ve checked my Sent mail folder, and it does show the attachment. The attachment (named scanned.jpg), since it contains high-resolution scans of both my driver’s license and my passport, must not be allowed into the wrong hands. The results could be disastrous. I implore you to ensure that your internet connection is secure.

I am attaching once again. Please do let me know when you have received. Once you have successfully received it, we can move along quite nicely, I believe.

Most warmly,

Scott

A couple things here:
1. I am addressing by the stated last name. It will soon switch to the familiar, in part to absolutely tick off the scammer as you will soon see.

2. I am using words about security but acting as though oblivious to it (scanning and sending/resending scans of a passport?!). And imploring him to ensure his internet connection is secure–that line was a hoot. He will, of course, ensure me it is…

3. I am still holding up the remainder of the info until he’s received the scan.
